I'm currently looking into getting a 2001 9-3. I think the car is great but one thing which seems to glare out at me is the thoroughness of the service Saab says the car requires every 30,000 or so miles.
It seems odd that a modern car would need to have fluids like the coolant and brake fluids drained and refilled after so few miles and then so frequently. Most cars go about 100,000 miles before such a service these days.
Anyone have any comments on why this service is so thorough, and what the true service needs of the car are? (Since the dealer quoting me at $500 for the service, I can think of one reason Saab wants me to do it so often.)
Thank you in advance for any help.
